Visibility/Location: There was only a marquee right before the turn when you were heading west on North Ave. However, if you were adding east, you might have been able to see the crazy armed blow up man, with smoke billowing out.

Wait Entertainment: There was not a person there was entertain the patrons, unless you count the girl before you enter (who was funny). However, they gave you a chance to take a ride in the coffin (even though you tech lose your place in line if you choose to do so) & the extremely loud lighting and strobe light FX that happens. It was way too loud.

Length of Event: I'd say a good 15-20 minutes.

Actor Performance: I was actually impressed! They were making noises that I did not even know humans can make. They stayed in character pretty much throughout the whole time. They did not just focus on the person in the front of the group (which was me).

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good until we got to the alien tunnel, which the group ahead of us seemed to be queasy from. We stayed in there a little longer so we did not tail them.

Appropriate Ages: I would recommend 13 and up. The scenes are not too gory. The actors did not curse.

Props / Special FX: Amazing!! I'm not even sure how to elaborate without giving away good parts! But, the girl who was "looking for a medical partner." AMAZING.

Costumes / Make-up: Very well done. I liked the doctors & the zombies. There were a lot that blended in with the props!

Summary: I was impressed. I am extreme baby when it comes to haunted houses. However, the actors were on point, and funny at times. The makeup, costumes, and scenes, are pretty much awesome too. They do a good job with scaring you and coming out when you least expect it. And even though my friends pushed me into the front of the line, they actually did very well with spreading the attention evenly, if not more attention to the middle/back (haha!). For the price that you pay, and the entertainment value you receive, I believe its a house that is hard to pass up. Good job Dream Reapers!
